Watch the Japanese trailer for Iron Man 3, starring Robert Downey, Jr.
Shane Black takes over the reigns from Iron Man and Iron Man 2 helmer Jon Favreau, directing from the script he wrote along with Drew Pearce, based on the comic book by Stan Lee, Don Heck, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby.
Iron Man 3 opens in theaters from May 3rd next year, and looks sensational judging from the images and trailer we've seen. The film pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
Also on board the cast are Ben Kingsley, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau, Stephanie Szostak and James Badge Dale.
